Secure Payment System

Technical Requirements

The Secure Payment System (SPS) is a web-based application.

To use SPS, you must use a computer system that meets these requirements:

  • Desktop, laptop, or tablet with 64-bit Windows 10 or 11. You should have applied all the latest Windows updates, patches, and service packs from Microsoft.
  • Latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • PIV/CAC/PIV-I card
  • One PIV/CAC/PIV-I card Reader
  • Internet connectivity

Windows 10 and 11 are fully supported on Desktop, Laptop and Tablet form factors. Windows 7 and Windows 8.x are no longer supported operating systems.

SPS does not use a web browser (like Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox) to launch or run. SPS does not depend on Java Web Plug-ins.

SPS uses a localized version of Java, not the Java that browsers use. This Java is built into SPS. Any Java updates your agency makes do not affect SPS.
